I was disappointed by how much I disliked this book as I'd found two other books by the author, 'Can You Keep a Secret' and 'Twenties Girl' light-weight but entertaining. The Mini of the title refers to Becky's spoilt toddler daughter. But the real shopaholic is Becky who displaces some of her desires to spend money by buying her daughter everything she demands. Becky is a vacuous, self-centred woman who wastes money on a grand scale even when her husband's bank is in crisis. I carried on listening as I had nothing else to accompany me on a long walk but didn't finish the recording as it just seemed to be catalogue of folly and stupidity with little to redeem it. If it was meant to be a satire it didn't work for me.

If you enjoyed the other shopaholic books, you'll love this. Becky is as always, both loveable and ridiculous.
Story tellers voice suits book type and the frivolous easy going pace of this piece of chick lit really lends itself to audio.
Don't expect literary genius & you'll enjoy.

If you want a fun, laugh-out-loud book, this is the book for you! Very hard to stop listening to it when you arrive at work and have to get out of the car. Also, although you want to get to the end of the book to see how Becky will get out of the messes she gets into, you are sad when you reach the end.
I have loved all of the Shopaholic books and Mini Shopaholic didn't disappoint me a bit, and as usual, Emily Gray did a superb reading of the book. I can't imagine Becky's voice any other way!
I love Becky but as always, there are times when I want to slap her to get her to wise-up, but that's just her lovable, frustrating self.
The only disappointment I had with this book, is that it seems to be the last in the series. I have written on Sophie's Facebook page about this, so I am hoping that she writes some more.
